Kyrie Irving and the Brooklyn Nets are currently pitted against each other as they seek to work out a new contract extension for the future of him and the organization.
However, as the negotiations progress, there doesn’t really seem to be any light at the end of the tunnel. While the thinking process around the league is that Irving will stay in Brooklyn, the two sides haven’t made much progress on a deal yet and things look bleak at the moment.
In the event that Irving does indeed leave the Nets, he already has a list of teams he has put together that he would like to join. There are six teams on this list, including the Los Angeles Lakers to team up with LeBron James again, as well as the Philadelphia 76ers with former Nets teammate James Harden.
The most important fact here is that Irving is not the priority for any of these teams at the moment.

Irving is a spectacular player capable of leaving at any time to lead Brooklyn in the blink of an eye, but he played just 103 games in three seasons with the Nets. This is a situation that could get worse before there is an agreement on both sides.
